What is the Difference Between Product Design and Product Development 2048 1367 TPrimmz Digital Agency

Product Design and Development have become huge departments of companies over the past couple years with the demand of the internet. However, there doesn’t seem to be very clear or well-defined lines between what they both are and how they are somewhat similar but different at the same time. In this blog we are going to discuss the different between product design and product development in the hopes that you, our reader, can choose which one they think that best works for their business.

First things first let’s define each of the terms. As always these are the ways that we define them and if you have another definition we would love to hear about it and your reasonings!

Product Development:

At TPrimmz we define product development as: a complete product development cycle from market analysis, product specifications, concept/industrial design, costing, scheduling, testing, manufacturing, Logistics, customer feedback, improvements and all other aspects of getting a product into the market.
Complete product development process includes involvement of marketing, design, purchase, manufacturing, sales and after sales support team.

Product Design:

At TPrimmz we define product design as the whole design process that includes product industrial design, user experience, 3D Cad modeling, design calculations, simulation. Responsibility of a good product design is to make product working as per design specifications.

So, in other words the aim of the Product design is to make new products in order to fulfill the demands of the customer, for survival purposes, improve the profit share and many other reasons. However, the aim of product development is to provide continuous improvement in the design of existing products. For an example, bikes are a part of the cycles which is consider product design and although we have a million different bike concepts we continuously improving the design of bikes in order to improve their efficiency which, is considered product development.
